The Gas Man, Anemone Jewels and Magic Wool

1    A lovely gas man has spent the day with us as he has been tracing the gas leak that we smelt last night. He is building his own Eco house and was fascinating to listen to as we waited for the other gas men to arrive to start digging up the front drive to find the source of the leak. The house is now clear but the men were working until 6.30pm, digging in the dark! They have enjoyed the bacon sandwiches and multiple coffees we made for them.

2    The anemones that friends brought us on Friday night have all opened up and are such beautiful rich colours. They remind me of my Mum who particularly loved anemones.

Jewel like anemones

3    Unable to go out or do much else today, I’ve been knitting and sewing up baby cardigans. I love this magic wool that makes its own pattern as I knit.
